  1. Gio was supposed to be out 2 - 4 weeks. Maybe he's progressing faster than originally planned?? They're up to something and my guess is it's at Tight End with Eifert out for the year and Kroft banged up. I think I'd rather go into a game with Mixon and Walton knowing Gio was coming back soon than with Uzomah and Shreck hoping Kroft is back soon.
  2. Wonder who they're signing? Clive Walford to replace Eifert or Ereck Flowers to replace Bobby Hart?

    Kenny Irons?? Although they probably claimed it was successful before finding out he had some strange keloid thing that would essentially end his career after more surgeries.
  4. Correct. It starts at 7 PM Eastern tonight and 12 PM / Noon tomorrow. Teams get 7 minutes to make picks in round 2. Teams get 5 minutes to make picks in rounds 3 - 6. Teams get 4 minutes to make picks in round 7. https://operations.nfl.com/the-players/the-nfl-draft/the-rules-of-the-draft/

    Rounds 2 and 3

    As much as I'd like it to be Mixon, I'm kinda hoping it's Malik McDowell. At right around 6'6" 295 he fits all of the physical characteristics the Bengals want. Able to line up outside and drop inside too is also a big plus. Bad senior year possibly due to minor nagging injuries and being used wrong sounds like someone else on the defensive line already. The only question mark is the supposed bad attitude (entitled, lazy) and lousy interviews at the combine. If one of Zach Cunningham or Alex Anzalone drops to the 3rd round pick, they'd be interesting picks too. Especially with Minter's one year deal.

    That depends on what he'd sign for. If it's a small enough contract then it would just wipe out the lowest signed contract of the guys we lost so far. Once we get the max of 4 qualifying losses, each additional one just offsets a potential new signing. They can sign them ahead of time if they're willing to assume the risk that no one signs Burkhead, but I think they'll wait until they're guaranteed to have a fifth loss for the offsetting condition. Right now: 1) Zeitler -> Cleveland Browns 2) Whitworth -> Los Angeles Rams 3) Peko -> Denver Broncos 4) Dansby -> Arizona Cardinals As soon as Burkhead signs someplace, they can add someone like Robinson. Then once one of Gilberry / Hunt / Peerman / Brown signs with someone they can bring in Andre Smith or another low-end FA. They just have to be careful and only cancel out the lowest qualifying contracts of their FA losses. Right now, I'm guessing they get a 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th next year unless someone like Burkhead gets a better deal than expected and bumps Peko / Dansby off that list.
  8. You can pretty much rule out Foster at #9 now. http://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2017/story/_/id/18818375/reuben-foster-alabama-crimson-tide-booted-combine-argument Concussions, bad shoulder that still needs 4 months to heal and he can't keep his cool waiting on his medical exams for the NFL Combine. Might be a target to move up and grab at the bottom of 1 or top of 2 but I can't see them pulling the trigger at 9 on him.
  9. I assumed it was because the 2016 League year hadn't officially ended yet. So they could still block the request for a few more weeks which would be a real dick move if he wanted to do the interview.
  10. Because he was put on season ending injured reserve.
  11. This is what I've been thinking more and more. I'd even follow it up with Hassan Ridgeway in the 2nd or 3rd round too. I don't see it as him having thrown Tunsil under the bus out of jealousy, more along the lines of him calling out the hypocrisy of the situation with people hanging from Tunsil's nuts simply because it wasn't public knowledge that he was there. It's still an immature thing to do instead of simply owning it and moving on.
  12. I was referring to Hobson's normal habit of using the Bengals math on cap hits and charges which is higher than what it actually is. They can start with 20 mil of cap space, spend 25 of the cap according to Hobson and still roll over 10. Yes, I know how they do it, it's just funny to watch Hobson report it the way he does.
  13. That's missing a chunk of what he actually wrote and I'm not going to bother with checking the math since I'm sure it's not 100% correct anyways...:
